Consider this a shop small holiday gift guide of seriously cool, wildly unique & practical gifts — for everyone on your list. Sustainable, Black-owned, local. It's all here.
We love small businesses over here at The Mom Edit, and this year — with so many hit especially hard by the pandemic, we're all making concerted efforts to shop small.

The best gift wrapping ideas this year? Eco-friendly & at home. We've got 6 fun, beautiful sustainable gift wrap ideas. Reuse. Recycle. Top it off. Happy hols!
The idea of someone tearing open pretty wrapping paper (then hastily chucking the gorgeous stuff into the trash) kinda hurts my heart a little, especially when a more sustainable approach isn't that hard.

Boon Supply is a brand that initially hooked me on their solid selection of (what I'll call) Prettier Home Essentials, but they're also a brand I'm happy to share for one other huge reason: they donate 40% of all earnings to a fundraiser/organization of your choice. We love brands who are committed to giving back, and have been really...
Black Friday 2020 predictions? On it! Our Black Friday & Cyber Monday sales game plan includes the best deals, sell-out risks & retailers on our radar.
One topic that keeps coming up — whether at work or in my personal life — can basically be boiled down to "holidays already?!" Depending on to whom I'm speaking, it's either, "holidays....ALREADY???" or "holidays already!!!" and while the tonal inflection varies, the element of surprise is the same. Ready or not, here they come. The specific question I get the most...
